    Alot of the time I carry the same gun as Carver only mine is DA/SA. Also the same ammo. If I'm not carring this than I carry my Ruger LCP.

    Winchester Silver Tips are frangable bullets, they won't give you the penetration that is needed on a bear, or mountain lion, and possibaly not in a human! My advice is to skip the Silver Tips all together! Even Winchester doesn't recomend the Silver Tips in a .44 Mag, for anything larger than deer! The 310gr. Garrettts will do the job, and do it well! http://www.winchester.com/Products/...per-x/silvertip-hollow-point/Pages/X44MS.aspx

    Currently, carrying the S&W 638, which I really like. Was carrying the LCR but my daughter appropriated it. I do have a Ruger LC9 which I am becoming familiar with that might be a suitable subcompact for carry. I have a Taurus Slim 709 next to me in my lazy boy as I type this. Like it alot.

    It was a great pistol and i loved the snub barrel. A 686 is a great revolver

    After carrying a 2.25", Ruger Sp101, .357 mag., for 8+ years, in an OSW high ride pancake holster, I decided I needed a Ruger LCR, when they came out. Early on the only ones available at my LGS was the .38 special model. So, I bought that.
    It is great for a pocket gun, in my Wrangler jeans or my slacks. But, when the .357 models came out, I had to have one of those also.

    The .357 Mag. LCR is a little heavy for me, in my pocket. But it fits great in the same holster I use to carry my SP101 in. And, it's about 10 or 12 oz. lighter, too.

    So now, my EDC is an LCR, either a .38 in my pocket or a .357 mag. LCR on my belt.

    I am carrying a Jennings .22lr auto in a small holster in my pocket. I would like to have better when my finances improve. But until now it will suffice. I have .38 Specials located all over the house in the ready if I need 'em. I just got an inside the pants holster for a 4" .38 Special that was on Ebay for $13.00. It does the job when I go out in the world.

    I carry a 642 in a Desantis pocket holster in the winter. I just bought a 3 inch SP101 and it will be worn iwb when I find a good holster. I also pocket carry an LCP with CT laser or Kahr cm9 in the spring and summer.
